  6. Lap 3 Uncle Chip + M45XL's $200

    Parts For Sale / Trade
    SOLD Greetings, Got rid of my 17 Sportage SX a few months ago. Selling my lap3 unclechip (set for 91 octane currently) and throwing in a set of hks M45XL's with about 1,000 miles on them. The M45XL's do not work well in my experience, this set started hard missfiring as soon as them ambient...
  7. 17 SX Stock Plugs at 2600 miles and HKS MXL45 Comparison

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Quick Update for anyone interested. The M45XL's started misfiring (hard miss, no combustion on random cylinders) after a couple thousand miles as soon as the ambient temps got into the low 50's. This seems to be a common issue for these plugs. I went back to the stock NGK's and immediately...
  8. Other cars flashing high beams too?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Late to the party on this one but.... It's fairly easy to adjust the beam height on the HID's all you need is a 10mm socket to adjust the height of the projectors. Turn on the lights, put tape marks on the wall, adjust, drive, repeat until you get them where you want. Using tape marks...
  9. SMS Messaging in the 2017 Sportage?

    AA can do it as well, factory system does not, at least with my nexus 5x.
  10. Bluetooth a joke

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    ^THIS ^THIS, functionality is qreat, too bad the music sound quality is so poor compared with bluetooth Not sure why yours doesn't work, do you not have the voice command system? If not, how would you want the buttons to work, scroll though the phone list for a number then dial it with the...
  11. How's the OEM sound system? Anyone upgrade the Subwoofer?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I added some fiberfill to the rear sub on the HK system and also deaded the driver side front door (used about 3, 1'x2' tiles in total for 1 door), added a foam baffle behind the door woofer, driver and a foam ring to isolate the front of the door driver from the door panel. Made a very...
  12. Stupid Question #?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    For those with the idle stumbles, would not hurt to ask the dealer to check the plugs. Sloppy has already had a couple fail and I think an other member had one fail as well. These are speed density, no MAF to worry about.
  13. 2.0 Turbo GDI engine roughness

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Ralph's is a grocery chain in California. Regardless of the chain name, most states have a points card that gets you a discount on fuel at shell and other stations. 91 is the highest we have here. I would use 93 if it were an option. That's me though and my cars never stay stock, especially...
  14. 2.0 Turbo GDI engine roughness

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    Because it loads down the engine too much at low rpm unless your using manual shift mode and are used to driving a manual 2.0t. It's fine on the highway but around town it tends to shift too soon and lug the engine a lot. I agree with Sloppy, cracked plug on #2 . Personally, I would never run...
